Thanks to Alfa Owners of New England and John DeWaele for organizing a car-crazy person's treat: a road trip to visit with Wayne Carini, a car enthusiast:
Let's start off with John's DeWaele's impressions of F40 Motorsports and its owner Wayne Carini. The group of 25-30 members and friends enjoyed a lively chat as Wayne gave us a brief history of F40 and how his TV show, Chasing Classic Cars got its start. The day finally came when Hazel made Wayne's dream come true by telling him it was time for the Hudson to go and it should go to Wayne. A family man as well, Wayne is a huge advocate for Autism Speaks, a charity that is near and dear to his heart. With all that he has going on, we really appreciate the time that Wayne and Lindsay spent with our club. Check out to learn more about Wayne, F40 and Chasing Classic Cars. Have show, be famous . Wayne Carini, the white-haired guy with a serious white mustache and ever-present jeans, is an accidental celebrity known to millions. His sudden fame is the byproduct of hosting the cable hit Chasing Classic Cars for several years, and he told us he just signed on for two more. The show's premise is simplicity itself: a small crew including a cameraman trails behind him as he moves from his shop in Portland, Connecticut, to just about anywhere in the United States or beyond. Short of tracking him into the restroom, whatever happens in a day's shooting generally ends up in a show episode. Wayne's travels take him to a lot of barns and garages - and some of the world's top concours auto shows - to pick up cars that seem to run from $40K up to several hundred thousand dollars, where purchase decisions are made on the spot. Success on each transaction depends a great deal on Wayne's deep knowledge of each car's value and the opinions he solicits from marque experts around the world. Sooner or later, Carini is either freshening or thoroughly restoring the car, and then selling it at a huge auto auction like Mecum or Barrett-Jackson if he hasn't already found a match in a well-heeled collector. From age 16, when Wayne first saw the car as it was serviced in his father's shop in Portland, Connecticut, he knew he had to have it someday. He was smitten by its American-designed body, built by Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring in Milan. Surprised, Wayne responded, "What do I do that's so special?" Wayne had one major reservation but liked the idea. Within an hour and half of the time they'd met, Wayne told us, they were filming Chasing Classic Cars for The History Channel (it now appears on the Velocity channel). "Jim owns the company, and he's the camera man because this is his pet project," Wayne says. In just one year, Chasing Classic Cars catapulted Wayne from being a reasonably successful buyer and seller of interesting classic cars to becoming known as one of the automobile world's most recognizable faces. "It is amazing," he says, shaking his head wryly as he considers the night-and-day change in his status. "No matter where I go across the country and around the world - in Kuwait I was like a rock star - people were screeching to a halt, jumping out of their cars, saying 'Oh my God, I can't believe I'm seeing you.'" And it's not just people on the street who recognize him, but top race car drivers, titans of the auto industry, and politicians who are very well known in their own right. "One of the people I've looked up to over the years, read about, and who has been important in my life, is Don Prudomme [the third highest-ranked driver in NHRA's list of 50 top drivers between 1951 and 2001 and the first to hit 250 mph in a funny car]. I always loved watching him," Wayne explains. "We'd go down to Connecticut Dragway and see him. "We were going to a kickoff party held each August on the Monterey Peninsula by Gordon McCall [his party is a must-do A-list-only private event], and Gordon told me Don was going to be there," Wayne tells us. "I asked, 'Do you think you can introduce me?' and Gordon brought me over to Don and says, 'Don, this is Wayne Carini,' and Prudomme goes, 'Oh my God! Wayne Carini!' and he's shaking. And I thought 'This is really strange.'" The same scenario has played out many times since, Wayne says. "I'm walking across the parking lot one day, and I see Bob Lutz [the ultimate car guy and father of some of both General Motors' and Chrysler's most iconic cars] and Bob's waving in my direction. I look over my shoulder, wondering, 'Who is he waving at?'" Another time, Wayne boarded an airplane and encountered a very well-known U. S. senator sitting in first class. "It's been an amazing ride," Wayne admits. A small pile of show trophies from Greenwich, CT, to Dubai frames Wayne Carini as he regales Alfa Owners of New England with stories about finding, buying and selling cars Car enthusiast Wayne Carini can and does drive anything he wants as owner of F40 Motorsports. One of his favorites, parked out front of his shop in Portland, Connecticut, is this oh-so-desirable grey Alfa Romeo Spider. This spectacular 1930s Lincoln has been restored by Wayne Carini, who in this case has followed the custom of his father, who owned a body shop in the same location, by painting an thin white stripe on each of its four wheels.
